nk497 writes “Symbian is no longer the most-shipped mobile platform, with Android finally knocking Nokia’s OS out of the number one position. Manufacturers shipped 32.9 million Android devices in Q4 of last year, compared to 31 million Symbian devices, according to Canalys. That gives Google a 33% share of the global mobile market, over 31% for Nokia’s Symbian. ‘It’s gone from nowhere to number one in the space of two years, which is pretty impressive,’ Canalys analyst Pete Cunningham said, predicting Android would double its growth rate this year.”

    What I find interesting is that despite essentially doubling their iPhone sales since the middle of 2010, Apple is now already a distant second to Android in terms of sales and smartphone market share.
